Welcome to the Vale of York T'ai Chi Qigong Association

This small, friendly group was founded in 2001 to promote the many health benefits of practising Qigong (pronounced 'chi kung'). We attract members mainly from an area within North Yorkshire stretching from Easingwold in the South to Northallerton in the North

New members are given a warm welcome once they have spent some time learning the basics in one of several Beginners’ Classes held throughout the year in the local area
